    4/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Speaking for myself I was given a lot of responsibility, which I thrived on. However, I know many of the other interns were also really hands on with some super interesting and important projects.

    5/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I would highly recommend a year out to anyone who has the option. It provides you with invaluable skills from being able to speak to people in a formal environment to organisational skills, and much more.

    5/5

  • 11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
  • If you make the most of your year, picking up skills throughout, making connections within your team and beyond, I'd say you'd have a really good shot at coming back into the SAP or partner ecosystem (and they have some really good opportunities)

    5/5
